Birthday Party (Adults) in Santa Monica, CA on 06/29/2013
"Chris performed at a 50th birthday party that I organized. I have to say I am very impressed with Chris and his talent and professionalism.
A day after I requested a quote on gigmaster Chris followed up with a phone call to make sure that any questions I had were answered. After listening to a few of his music samples and getting a few more quotes, I chose Chris because his style of music seemed to be exactly what I was looking for.
Chris promptly arrived an hour before the party as we had discussed. All the guests commented on what a wonderful addition the music to the night. I would 100% recommend Chris!
